    Re: My first question here

    Us, too. Jocelyn does it every now & then with her upper teeth. It's been a few weeks since she did but I know the pain you're talking about! I think scrapping is a great word to describe it. She...

    Re: Strange question - Need help

    I've got girlfriends that can still squeeze some out 2 or 3 years after weaning!
    I've heard the general rule is that as long as you've been done with nursing is about how long it'll take to get your...

    Re: She's a Real Head Turner, This One!

    I've got a little acrobat, too! LOL Sometimes after a feed I'll have her on my shoulder for a burp & she'll pull back to look at my face. Then she glances down & sees that my nipple's still out &...

    Re: Dream Feed . . . Opinions Please

    Works for us. I put her down at 8 with a feed & then top her off with a dream feed around 10:30 (heading off to do that now, actually!) and then I go to sleep. She doesn't wake to eat again until...

    Re: new here and question

    The easiest way I've been able to increase my supply is by eating oatmeal. I have it for breakfast & make oatmeal cookies & go to town on them when I feel like I'm low! :D Yummy. :D

    Re: Mastitis is coming - can I do anything!?

    It's not from a plugged duct, though. It's from a crack on my nipple - some 'infection' must've gotten in there. I've got the hot red spot but no other symptoms yet.

    Mastitis is coming - can I do anything!?

    I've had mastitis a few times & am pretty sure I'm getting it again. Is there anything I can do right now to stop it without having to go to the Dr, get the meds & let it run its course?

    Re: How much is your 6 m/o eating?

    Woops! Sorry, I thought I said it in my original post! She's 15 pounds even. ;)

    I found a thing on Kellymom that said the avg for a 1-6 mo old is about 25 oz (19-30 a day). So I guess...

    Yeast & Yogurt

    My LO & I have had thrush for almost 6 months now. I've done the meds (didn't work) and I've done Gentian Violet (also didn't work). I've stopped wearing breast pads except on the opposite breast...

    I, too, have OALD & the only bottles I've tried that LO will take is a new one from NUK. The nipple is shaped just like the NUK pacifiers (which she refuses, too! We tried 7 different ones!) and...

    Re: Why are underwire bras a no no when nursing?

    I'm very prone to clogs so I steer clear of the UWs. If I even sleep 1 night in an UW bra (like if my sport bras are in the wash) I wake up with a clog.

    I wish I had some help to offer - but I can only offer empathy! I've had thrush for 5 months now. I hate it. I just want so bad to be able to enjoy nursing.
